This is almost as dumb as the Do we really want Burrows thread.

Actually I just made up my mind. This thread right here sums up what's wrong with this fan base.


Why? Because we actually question your boyfriends potential? Clearly you're believing the comparisons to Lucic that the media have generated.

Why can't Canuck fans support their players...it's just ridiculous. We truely do have one of the worst fanbases in the league IMO.

No problem, but read the link I posted for a laugh.


Yeah, this site is always good for a laugh. Not that I'm saying I've never posted something incredibly stupid because I have! Oh lord have I ever!! But most of the time I'm just goofing around or being sarcastic, only problem is sarcasm doesn't translate well through text...

He's better!

No, but this kid is so under-hyped by Canucks fans.

I find it hilarious how fans have been whining for years that we need to get bigger. We need to get that young powerforward who can dominate. And now we have one with huge potential, and all fans can do is rip him because he's not golden boy Cody Hodgson.

Intelligent fans realize that this kid just turned 21, and wasn't going to step in the league and play a big role right away. He's still a fairly raw talent like many young powerforwards are.

Messier is a different story. He completely ruined our team whereas Kassian literally has done nothing at all.

I am not alone in being a Canuck who hated Messier before he was even a Ranger. He was a cheap shot pos that makes Torres look like a Lady Byng winner.

the only people who think he's overhyped are Hodgson lovers who still can't get over the trade and thought Hodgson was going to be a superstar.

The comparisons to Lucic are grossly inaccurate as of right now.

they're both big, their junior numbers are comparable and so are their early NHL numbers. Lucic had 27 points in 77 games his first season and Kassian has 10 in his first 44.

Kassian definitely has potential, maybe not to be AS good as Lucic but definitely up there. He is still only 21 after all

Kassian is going to be a force for this team soon and will be a fan favourite. The kid needs this full off season to train with the team and have an actual training camp. He should be playing top 6 on our team next year.

Sedins can make anyone a goal scorer, I say he plays with them. Don't expect 30 goals but 20-25 with 50-60pts and big hits and fights and just backing the Sedins up, is exactly what we need from him. In the playoffs he will be huge for us, just hopefully the kid gets proper ice time.

I said it before, Kassian on the 4th line playing 5mins a game is stupid and he will never reach his potential and develop. If we want him to be like a Lucic he needs consistant minutes in the top 6 and he will develop to what we want.

One thing I just don't get is why he was never used on the pp and just freakin parked there like so many teams do with their players. He is a big and strong guy that won't get pushed around easy. We saw what big buff did too the Canucks. Just seems like the coach is too scared to use young guys. The way I see it you throw your young guys in right away, because they have got a lot more to prove then guys with long term contracts. The Flyers trusted their young guys why can't our dumb coach?

But the comparisons at each level of development are not. Some people tend to read too much into rather simple statements.
